I know if I want convenience I should stick to the mountain, but it's usually more expensive. Maybe not??? Would appreciate some recommendations, as well as some suggestions for restaurants. Also, which is better for transportation from Hayden airport to Steamboat- Alipine vs. Storm Mountain?

    • Whale watching

      Maui Dec 17, 2014 at 11:51 PM

      I'm going to Maui with my family (5 adults) next week. Someone had suggested going whale watching with the Pacific Whale Foundation. I've looked on their website, and they seem to offer a multitude of packages to do the same thing (so it seems).

      Any suggestions or experiences with these whale watching tours? They seem like a fun family activity for a reasonable price.

      I think the rafting option is a no-go, as my mom can't swim and will be scared to death. She'll want the stability of a boat.

      Thanks in advance!

    • From BUF Airport to Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario

      Buffalo Dec 15, 2014 at 4:14 AM

      Hi everyone, I have always wanted to visit Niagara-on-the-Lake is a Canadian town located in Southern Ontario and I guess the day has come now....I know it kinda cold right now this time of winter and thinking to travel when springs comes or summer time. My question is which season are pretty good to visit the Niagara-on-the-Lake....I hope this will be answered by the person who lives there or the person who had seen both season and had good experience. My second question is since I will be coming via a plane to Buffalo Airport and from there I had to take some sort of transportation. Is there any reliable cheaper transportation that takes me straight to the lake? I made a little research and found this website http://buffaloexpresstaxi.com/ claiming that they will provide a sightseeing tour without no waiting charge it sounds pretty good to me but just want to make sure if I have another option. Thank you so much for your relevant information and time.

      by danijels Online Now Aug 27, 2011 at 2:30 AM

      Hi everyone

      We are four guys travelling to SLC in March 2012. As we will be fully equipped with a ski bag and a piece of luggage each, I was wondering if there is any advice on the best way to get to a downtown hotel without too much hassle with dragging our equipment around. I imagine a regular cab would not hold that much, so are there private shuttle companies with bigger vans that can be rented or some other options we should know about? Shuttle busses perhaps?

      Since we are from Europe, we don't have much clue as to cab fares, bus ticket prices and other costs, so any advice at all is really appreciated.

I am hoping that we can get some travel advice on our stay here. First, are there day trips that anyone can recommend besides the attractions in SLC? Since our daughter will not be staying with us during the trip, I was also wondering if there any any overnight trips we can take?

Any recommendations on what to do, where to stay (moderate rates) and interesting places to eat (including vegetarian) , would be most appreciated.

      Since I joined VT in 2003, I have met over 100 VTers from all over the world. I've done meetings everywhere from New York to Amsterdam and from Cologne to Toronto. Whenever I'm abroad, and have a little time to spare, I try to meet some of the local VTers. And of course other VTers who are just visiting are welcome to.

      Now, it so happens I will be in Salt Lake City for a few days in April. I was wondering if anyone living in the area is up for a night in the town. Have dinner somewhere, maybe a few drinks afterwards.

      My best option is Sunday May 2nd. I'll put this in the Meetings Calendar as well.
